Before MP3’s, digital, I-Tunes and the dreaded convenience of the internet, there was the direct & tangible excitement of the mix-tape universe, an open forum in which aspiring and established programmers, niche enthusiasts and curious explorers of the vast web of professional and not-so-pro disc jockeys interacted through the 90 minute medium of the 2-sided tape cassette. It was here that reputations were made & dismantled, and dreams of grandeur were realized in the small-time fame of inner-circle reputation. Of course, the mixes themselves had to do more than simply verify “Yes, I can put 2 records together…I am a DJ”; they had to actually demonstrate an ability to effectively rock a party, compare, contrast & assemble tracks with an intuitive programming wit that only the worthy possessed.

This second installment of the retrospective “CORE” mix series, presented by slow to speak’s Paul Nickerson & Francis Englehardt, continues the loyal chronicling of the not-so-distant past of 1990’s classic house euphoria. A demonstration first and foremost in party-rocking mastery, “CORE -1995 (b)” flies with full-on cockiness & show-off confidence, yielding a maximum anthemic force in a time when soulful dance music was beginning to come into it’s own, having weathered the difficult years of inception and only then settling in to cultural solidification. Another authentic & sincere example of classic house music mixed with the energetic virtuosity & quick-fire instinct of youths fully enraptured with newfound creative possibilities of their adored medium.
